MAX5

The MAX5 Lab Finished propeller – designed specifically by Mercury Racing for 400R Racing outboards – has also achieved tremendous success in other outboard applications. Although MAX5 was targeted toward high-horsepower outboards, it also benefits applications with Mercury Racing 520 to 600 HP single and lightweight twin-engine sterndrive applications. Compared to the four-blade Bravo I, MAX5 offers quick hole shot with reduced slip percentages throughout the rpm range, increasing top speed 6-8% on average. MAX5 has a short barrel that minimizes stern lift and less blade area than the Lab Finished Maximus, allowing it to spin up and accelerate faster. This gears MAX5 toward lightweight sterndrive boats that require bow lift for maximum top-end speed. For big power, high X-dimension heavy step-vee-bottom boats the Lab Finished Maximus continues to be the prop of choice.

  • Designed for use with Mercury Racing Bravo One XR Sport and Sport Master outdrives
  • Compatible with Mercury Racing 520, 540, 565, and 600 SCI engines
  • Reduced slip compared to four-blade propellers improves mid-range fuel efficiency and top-end speed
